have that kind of relationship with john boehner, say, where we can feel optimistic that they're going to have a very different kind of relationship but can actually be more effective? >> i think there's a different kind of dynamic that speaker boehner has to deal with. i don't know him personally, but his reputation is that he can get deals done, but then he has to sell them in a caucus, some whom, a minority, but a vocal minority of whom are very rigid indeed. so i think the speaker has an opportunity to show his more magnanimous leadership and to lead the whole of the house, and not just his caucus. and as he does that, i think his relationship, not just with the president, but with the general public will improve, and i hope it does. >> one of the issues he's going to face is gun crime, gun control, gun violence, generally. he's been generally audacious in terms of the proposals he's put forward. there's a reality check within minutes of him doing so. people have been queuing up from both sides of the senate and saying look, he may want an assault weapons ban but he's not going to
of this equation? >> without a doubt. if you heard speaker john boehner just the other day after the inaugural address saying the president is trying to annihilate the republican party. that's a strong word. but does this president see an opportunity? i'd be interested in the congresswoman's opinion. you can't find many democrats who think that president obama worries about the democratic party, 10, 15, 20 years down the road. but you will find a lot of democrats who say if you can turn the obama coalition into a democratic coalition, the democrats will have built in on the national stage what ronald reagan had for 20 years and republican party had after ronald reagan on the national stage. this coalition, if he can transfer it over, it spells trouble for the republicans. >> congresswoman, what do you think about what john king is saying? >> i'm not privy to the president's processes and how he came up with the decision. all i can tell you is women have been dying and fighting and bleeding for this nation in combat roles in iraq and afghanistan. they may not have had those jobs specifically ot
house speaker john boehner. we will have congresswoman nancy pelosi. we will have congressman kevin mccarthy. we will have senator carl levin. on both sides of the aisle, they will be here honoring folks who will be coming who have been hand picked with the help of the dod and folks at the pentagon, wounded warriors, actually i was just talking to one of the organizers tonight, don. she told me one of the widows from s.e.a.l. team 6 will be here tonight. so we will try to talk to her. and a couple of awards will be handed out. just quickly, we learned a number of the tuskegee airmen will be near attendance and perhaps perhaps, the big headliner, is lynyrd skynyrd, good old southern rock guys. they will be here presenting and introducing some of these tuskegee airmen. look out for that we will be here. we will bring you the party live from the warner theater, the red, white and blue ball. don lemon, you jealous? >> all right. oh, yes, of course i am. but you should be jealous because i'm going to the hip-hop ball as well. you have got your party shoes on, you are appropriately dressed.
to all house republicans and said your fight is not with john boehner, your fight is with james madison. he wrote this system this is the government we have. if you believe in the constitution, we have division of power. tough work within that to get an agreement. >> so, then frame that for me as words in a speech tomorrow that the president's delivering. he has to say -- >> the speech tomorrow should be the big picture above it all, should not be specific policies. save it for the state of the union that is a more plebeian speech. the power of the inaugural speech, what you want to in your president. >> ari fleisher, nice to have you this afternoon. >> great to be here. >> so great to be here with you, of course, i'm john berman. >> thank you. >> thank you so much for joining us this special coverage of president obama's inauguration. >> of course, i'm soledad o'brien. our special coverage continues all afternoon. don lemon's going to be up next with more from here in washington, d.c. ♪ [ male announcer ] when we built the cadillac ats from the ground up to be the world's best sport
. but you're right. they have as john boehner likes to say, they have just this -- they have the house. one half of one-third of what controls washington. so boehner is a national leader. you have mitch mcconnell, minority leader in the senate. but they don't have the platforms that the president of the united states has. on the other hand, they do control the house of representatives. and if -- a fiscal resolution to some of the fiscal issues. >> they don't agree on any of those issues, though. >> not at all. so what's -- how does he move his agenda through this congress, right? when republicans control the house? the only model we have so far is what happened with the fiscal cliff. negotiate a deal on the senate between republicans, democrats and the white house, and then force it through the house of representatives by basically putting republicans' backs to the wall and making them pass it either at the last minute, because there is a deadline approaching or because they'll be so embarrassed if they don't pass it. and that's not a great legislative strategy for every issue. but the issu
john boehner claims that president obama's second term focus is to, quote, annihilate the republican party. >> we're expecting to hear over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the republican party. >> boehner said he and other house republicans charted out a short-term strategy last week but the party needs to begin a broader discussion about upcoming key policy debates. >>> so she knocked off serena williams earlier this week but this morning 19-year-old american tennis phenom sloan stephens is out of the australian open. victoria azarenka beat her in straight sets. stephens had to sit and wait again during a medical time-out. azarenka asked for it after she botched five game points. bottom line, azarenka goes on, sloan stephens does not. >>> now to wales and soccer. so it looks like a cheap shot on the ball boy here. check it out. was the ball boy there actually being a ball hog or is this just a big misunderstanding? what was going on here, you make the call. a replay showed that chelsea's eden hazard kicking the teenager after t
